    Knott's Berry Farm - 8/11. Large crowds, and Hunt Preperations, plus more

    http://darkbeer.smugmug.com/gallery/3294104

    Stopped by Knott's on Saturday. The place was very busy, looks like their marketing and pricing strategies are working.

    The Ranger Station has been moved.

    A look at some of the craft artisans.

    Perilous Plunge has 2 boats running.

    The first mazes are showing up in the parks, Haunt opens the last weekend of September, and will feature 5 new mazes, including new mazes for both the Log Ride and the Mine Train Ride.

    And then at the end, a special look at Mickey....

    Great pics.....That BBQ menu looks yummy and not very expensive either. Might just have to check it out.

    OMG, thank you for posting this. I've been toying with taking advantage of the BBQ deal all summer, but seeing those waits, it's definitely getting postponed. Besides, what good is KBF without the Log Ride operating?

    Did you happen to see how long the Chicken Dinner lines were?

    I thought the Stage Coach didn't run anymore? I'd like to go just for that and the BBQ.
    I want my cake back!

    The Stage Coaches runs almost the entire year, it does go dark from mid-September thru mid-November due to the Haunt Mazes that use the pathway.

    No one leaves dry on Perilous Plunge! Fun ride for being so short.

    that place becomes your average Ceader Fair Theme Park every time I go there..really kinda sad to tell you the truth.

    Why has the Log Ride been closed for so long? Any tentative opening date?

    Also, any word on what else may go next to the Ranger Station? Or the supposed "Pony Express" ride?
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    I think the Log Ride had some ceiling collapse issues that made the park replace all of them in the ride - which is taking a long time. That's the way it was told to me, anyway.

    well the log ride SHOULD be open by Haunt, since that's going to be the usual rethemed ride

    Well if they get the repairs done in time, and that DOSH signs off on the attraction.

    And the Log Ride is scheduled to have a NEW theme, "Pyromaniax", no more Red Moon Rising.....
